Is it in Conciliation Court?
Alright, so a lawyer is allowed. (In some small claims court a lawyer is not allowed). Well, generally, the way a lawyer beats a non-lawyer is with knowledge of law and procedure and they use the procedure and tactics to get the non-lawyer into trouble. But in small claims court that is much less likely to happen as the process is more "user friendly." So you should just follow what the court instructs and if the lawyer files something, look up the rules or ask here, and respond as best you can. I think you will be fine because as long as you have your evidence in order its really about the hearing and there is not much a lawyer can do at a hearing to outmaneuver you in small claims court. If it were in District Court I think it would be a little different.
